Penn State Food Districts Extend Hours For Finals Week

Oh yes, it’s once again that time of year. The time when sleep becomes something of a myth, hours upon hours are spent pouring over textbooks that haven’t been touched since the first week of class, and the desire to drop out and become a rodeo clown becomes almost overwhelming.

Luckily, Penn State food services has decided to extend its hours of operation for many of the dining districts around campus during this most hated week of weeks. Here are the adjusted hours, tailored especially for you:

East District at Findlay:

Edge–open until 2 a.m. Sunday (12/11) through Tuesday (12/13)

South Food District:

Louie’s–open until 2 a.m. Sunday (12/11) through Tuesday (12/13)

Business Building:

Blue Chip Bistro–

Bistro open until 6 p.m.

Coffee Bar open until 8 p.m.


MacKinnon’s Cafe–

open until 11 p.m. on Friday (12/9)

open from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. on Saturday (12/10)

open from 11 a.m. until 1 a.m. on Sunday (12/11)

open from 7:30 a.m. until 1 a.m. Monday (12/12) until Friday (12/16)


Starbucks–open until 12 a.m. Sunday (12/11)

Hopefully, some of these extended hours will help you stay alive and refreshed during this stressful time. As always, good luck on your exams!
